Accommodation is an important part of your student life. It’s a fantastic way to meet your new classmates and to socialise on and off campus.
We offer some on-campus accommodation, as well as a range of assistance and resources to help you find accommodation close to your campus.

Coming from overseas?
We understand how important housing and accommodation is for students arriving from overseas. It can be difficult to make a decision about permanent housing before you start your studies.
Before you arrive in Melbourne, it’s a good idea to have some temporary accommodation sorted out. An international housing adviser can assist you.
A homestay is a great way for you to learn English and experience the Australian lifestyle. During a homestay, you live with a local family while you study. Swinburne has a proud partnership with the Australian Homestay Network.
Our friendly housing advisers can guide you in your search for accommodation, including advice on lease agreements and dealing with real estate agents.
